From Sportsnet / NHL Power Rankings:

If most teams lose the NHL's winningest goaltender to a broken finger, most teams would suffer a setback. The Detroit Red Wings, however, are not most teams. The winged wheel just plugs in backup Joey MacDonald and keeps motoring. MacDonald now has a better save percentage than All-Star Jimmy: .934.

With Dats out I pretty much now what the result is now as I wasn't too confident before the injury and now I now our 6 game win streak ends tonight and the 23 game home win streak ends on Thursday.

The reported lines for Chicago:

Sharp-Morrison-Kane
Brunette-Bolland-Hossa
Bickell-Kruger-Stalberg
Hayes-Mayers-Frolik


Looks pretty weak to me. Even with Datsyuk out that is a very beatable lineup. Morrison as their number 1? Good opportunity to get the road record back on track.

The world will probably implode so we won't need to worry. :ph34r:

Not sure I understand the doom and gloom? We have the deepest team in the NHL. Crawford is weak and the Hawks are fragile.

We will be victorious! :siren:

Oh, well. The streak had to end some time, right? No big thing, and Pavel is getting this done in plenty of time to be 100% in the playoffs.
And I guess if we're pinning all of our hopes on one player, however awesome he may be, then we didn't stand a snowflake's chance in hell anyway. :)
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

Unless I can find the FSD feed for this game, I'll be watching the game on mute tonight.

Wings 3 (Huds/Fil/Kronner)
Hawks 1 (Sharp)

GO WINGS GO!!!


No way we'll be getting it on FSD. We'll probably have the double pleasure of NBCsports (VERSUS) plus Eddie O. I really can NOT stand him anymore. I mean I really can't. So the mute button will be very popular at our house too. :angry:

So we can't win without Datsyuk? Our team is nothing without him? Good to know, let's just coast from here since that means we aren't good enough to win in the playoffs, get a good draft pick and blow up the team this summer.

I expect Z with bad back and all to continue his own little streak and carry this team on his shoulders for the first time in a while.

I guess the fact that Toews is out doesn't matter to you. Surprise.

Red Wings will beat Chicago tonight. Filppula and Kronwall will have a huge game tonight for the team. Now that Datsyuk is injured... will Holland make a trade now or wait till the deadline? I hope that Pavel will come back from his injury with a vengeance.
Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are or where we are going in this ocean of chance, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.

Or that we still won the Central last year with Datsyuk missing nearly half the season when we had a worse team than this year.

Don't know if it's been answered already but do we know if Quincey is playing tonight?
